Yes , there's two polls here both the same.

I am having problems getting the "POLL" feature to work. :wacko:

Model A all the way. Model A's were a four-year run, the deuce was a single year. More raw material to work with equals more cars hot rodded.

Depending on whose figures you believe there were somewhere between 7 and 9 million Model As made over the four-year run. (All body styles included in that number). Those numbers are the domestic production not including anything made overseas and I cannot find whether the Canadian production numbers were included in that total or not. Long story short, there were a pile of them around as raw material.

Deuce. It doesn't have the ugly awning over the windshield.

While I love a nice model A and they are certainly more affordable, in the most traditional sense, the '32 ( roadster in particular) is the king of the hot rods!:D When Model A's are rodded, what are the traditional mods? Deuce frame, Deuce grille....because the guys that rodded them wanted a '32 but either couldn't afford one or find one. Of course, these days you can get repop bodies in both steel and glass, so it comes down to personal preference.    -Larry

This is like asking, "which of your children do you like the best?" Despite that, I'm more of a Deuce guy. I also wonder what happens if we throw the "T" in there too?

Definitely deuce. Worth WAY too much money to the grey-hair crowd....so I sell it, and then buy 3 Model A coupes with the proceeds :D

The 32 will always have that mystique, that aura about it ....but as far as model kits go...wish I had bought one of those 30's in the short time it was available. When is it coming out again? Guess it's re appearance is hampered by the Hobbico debacle.

I gotta go model A, there is just something sinister looking about one with a big chop.

I like them both but if I had  to pick it would be the "Deuce". It seems that a big % of the A's use deuce frames and radiators shells anyway. There are "pure" A's and there are A's that  want to be Deuces.
